SHHHHH...Don't Tell Anyone

Pardon me if I do not cite resources for this particular tech, for my time on the net is very limited today. With that out of the way, let's journey to the implications of this new technology.

Scientists have pinpointed a frequency that when pointed at a person makes them unable to speak. Thought still goes through, as are all actions, save for speech.

What does this mean for society?

First of all, libraries will be splaying this frequency throughout their halls, to make sure no disruptions happen. This is both good and bad. I can't recall how many times I've been pulled out of a fantastical story by some bugger shouting at their significant other about some insignificant thing. A bad part about any whole building with this tech deployed is that if there ever was a true emergency, no one would be able to shout for help. Guess we'll all have to wear whistles when we go to check out books.

There are many uses outside of buildings for this silencing tech, but many of them are very nefarious. Constables and officers of the law will be able to utilize this at their own discretion. If a police person happens upon a demonstration that they may not agree with, they can silence a whole crowd from expressing their viewpoints and exercising their rights to freedom of speech.

Many people I know would love to use this device on me because I say many things that others do not wish to hear. I pull no punches with anyone when it comes to ideas, conceptualizations, and observations of truth. The truth hurts, but not if no one is around to hear it. Well now, they can stop me. I'll be quiet now, but this may be the last time I do so willingly.

There's also a frequency that makes you puking sick, and I'm not even sure that it's audible.
